The Image Bearer Of God

 Genesis 1; 26- 27 

 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness.So God created man in His own image;He created him in the image of God;He created them male and female.

 

Than God said, “ let us make man in our own image to rule and have dominion  over God’s creation and He created them male and female.  God commanded them to be fruitful and multiply and fill the earth and have dominion over all the creation. Only command God them they were not to eat from the tree of the knowledge for on the day that you eat from it you will surely die, and know good and evil. God saw all that He had made, and beheld, it was very good. Then, the Lord God formed a man of dust from the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and a man became a living being. Watchmen Nee penned these words in book called Latent Power of The Soul, ” Would God, then, ask Adam to do what he was incapable of doing? We can therefore conclude that if Adam was capable of managing the earth, his prowess was most certainly superior to ours today. He had power, ability, and skill. He received all of these abilities freshly from the Creator”.

 John MacArthur when addressing creation Believe it or Not 1, Genesis tells us about the origin of man. Man is the most highly organized and complex entity in the universe. Man is the supreme illustration of order and complexity. He possesses not only innumerable intricate physical chemical structures in the marvelous capacities of life and reproduction, but beyond that sort of physical part of man there is a nature that can contemplate abstract entities of beauty and love and worship and which is capable of understanding and thinking about its own meaning. It is self-awareness that singularly identifies and separates man from the rest of the created order. For example, DNA John MacArthur On creation Now let’s get a little wild here. If the 46 segments of DNA in one of your cells, and every one of your cells has the same 46 little…little DNA components, let’s just uncoil them. If we just took one little cell and got the little coil DNA strip  stretched it out, it would be seven-feet long. It would be really thin. It would be so thin, I’m told, we couldn’t see it under an electron microscope. But, if it were stretched out it would be seven-feet long. That’s in everyone of your hundred trillion cells. It would be so thin that the details of it couldn’t be seen. However, listen to this, if all the DNA in your body, lets just take all of it and stretch it out and connect it together, it would stretch from here to the moon one half million times. Pretty incredible you are, huh? If all this very densely coded information were placed in typewritten form, if it was just typed out in you, just for you, it would fill the Grand Canyon 50 times. Scripture states “ That’s how fearfully and wonderfully you are made,” 

 

Then, the Lord God took the man and put him into the garden of Eden to cultivate it and keep it. Because Adam without sin, he able to perform duties that God gave him.  Watchmen Nee penned these words in book called Latent Power of The Soul, ” Would God, then, ask Adam to do what he was incapable of doing? We can therefore conclude that if Adam were capable of managing the earth, his prowess was most certainly superior to ours today. He had power, ability, and skill. He received all of these abilities freshly from the Creator”.  Since,  God created every living creature both male and female. However, Adam was without a suitable helper, than God caused a deep sleep to fall upon him, and he went into a deep sleep; then He took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh. Fashioned into a woman the rib which He had taken from the man, and brought her to the man.  The man said, “This is now bone of my bones, And flesh of my flesh; and  she will be called Woman, Because she was taken out of Man.”  They became one flesh, and they were naked and without shame, because they were unaware good and evil. Both Adam and Eve worked in the garden and there was no conflicted. There were living in constant harmoniousness relationship between God and humankind and they knew no evil. God saw everything was very good
